     I’d love to see this happen, but are we sure this is WGA eligible?

    What would you replace it with? Because, right now, it doesnt look good for TI.

    Kris Tapley’s article said Intouchables is not eligible.

    Also ineligible for original screenplay with the guid is “Amour” from Michael Haneke. Foreign films made under the rules of WGA-affiliated international guilds can often qualify, but alas, a number of movies made outside the US are often disqualified due to further guild requirements. (Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano’s “The Intouchables” is in a similar boat this year.)

    Yes thank you Logan. I actually read those exact same words. Lol. For me, that’s not a firm comfirmation, or conclusive..

    I’d love to see the WGA find some kind of way to allow TI inclusion. If it’s nominated, that’s a boost for the film.

    Instead of The Intouchables, I’d go with Promised Land. Is that eligible?

    Therefore:
    1. The Master
    2. Moonrise Kingdom
    3. Looper
    4. Flight
    5. Promised Land

    Is there some reason you aren’t listing ZD30? It’s a lock to be nominated, might even be the favorite to win.

    From DH, confirming what we knew yesterday from Kris Tapley’s article:

    Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Les Miserables (William Nicholson, Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schonberg, Herbert Kretzmer) are among a bunch of prominent movies whose screenplays the Writers Guild of America excluded from nominating ballots for its awards this year. Ballots sent to members list 112 eligible screenplays – 44 adapted and 68 original, Variety reported. The WGA requires that scripts be produced under Guild jurisdiction or under a collective bargaining agreement in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand or the U.K. and that the scripts be formally submitted for consideration. Other excluded titles include Amour, The Impossible, Middle of Nowhere, Seven Psychopaths, Take This Waltz, Your Sister’s Sister and Pixar’s animated Brave in the original category. Omissions in the adapted category include Anna Karenina, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Intouchables, Quartet and Rust And Bone. Being shut out of the Writers Guild Awards consideration won’t keep these movies off Oscar ballots, however. Despite shared memberships, screenwriting nominees for the Motion Picture Academy seldom correspond 100% in either original or adapted categories because Oscar rules are less restrictive.
